Dernier & Hamlyn chosen by Conran for first D&D London hotel
The new South Place Hotel opened by restaurateurs D&D in the City of London was designed to reflect the culture and distinct style of the area and the quintessential essence of what makes Britain great. This approach included the choice of bespoke lighting produced by our team as well as commissioned works from London artists and Angler and a British seafood restaurant.
Designed by Conran and Partners we produced statement fittings for 3 South Place Restaurant, 3 South Place Bar and for one of the 1st floor meeting rooms, as well as more than 300 pendant and reading lights for the hotel’s 80 bedrooms.
Associate director at Conran and Partners Tina Norden comments: “We have worked with Dernier and Hamlyn on many projects, they are always first to mind when we commission custom light fittings. We know that we can rely on them for quality and service and that this is always backed by their extensive expertise and honest advice.”
Our light fittings at South Place incorporated a range of materials and manufacturing techniques to achieve Conran and Partner’s design objectives and included layered shades to diffuse light in the bedroom areas, two stainless steel trough style chandeliers (10m long and 5m long) on the ground floor and a circular bronze fitting featuring 78 lamps for the meeting room.
